Description

I have 16 years experience working with families and children in clinical settings. In over 11 years with Toronto CAS, I had worked with clients from diverse backgrounds, and assisted many of them in tough situations. I practice in the anti-oppression, anti-racism framework with a strength-based focus and through trauma-informed lens.

I hold a master degree in Social Work, and speak fluently in both English and Mandarin. I plan to gently lead you to discover your inner voice, strength, and resilience.
